night. >> couric: tonight, they went to copenhagen and all you got was the bill. cbs news exposes a congressional junket to the climate summit that could make a taxpayer's temperature rise. i'm katie couric. also tonight, racially insensitive comments spell more trouble for the democrats in a critical election year. >> i've apologized to the president. i've apologized to everyone within the sound of my voice that i could have used a better choice of words. >> couric: and houston, we've got an idea. how the shuttle astronauts are helping steve hartman prove everyone in the world has a story. captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news world headquarters in new york, this is the "cbs evening news" with katie couric. >> couric: good evening, everyone. he's just nine days away from his first anniversary and the honeymoon is clearly over for president obama. a new cbs news poll is just out tonight and for the first time his job approval rating has fallen below 50%. here it is. 46% of the americans we surveyed approve of the job he's doing as president, down four points since last month.
argue with the u.s. having a presence at the copenhagen climate summit. >> i'm always hopeful. >> reporter: but wait until you hear what we found about how many in congress got all expense paid trips to denmark on your dime. our cameras spotted house speaker nancy pelosi at the summit. she called the shots on who got the go. that's house majority leader steny hoyer. there's the embattled chairman of the tax committee charles rangel. >> did you take care of mr. rangel? >> he sure is! >> reporter: they were joined by 17 colleagues, democrats waxman, miller, markey, gordon, butterfield, cleaver and gifford and republicans barton, upton more, capito, sullivan, black burn and sensenbrenner. that's not the half of it. finding out more was a bit like trying to get the keys to fort knox. many referred us to speaker pelosi who wouldn't agree to an interview. her office told us it will comply with disclosure requirements but wouldn't give us cost estimates or even tell us where they all stayed. senator inhofe is one of the few who provided us any details. he attended the summit on his o

-- they stay at a really nice hotel. they stayed at the marriott in copenhagen when they went to the climate summit. it was five star. it was $2200 per night. each one of the congressmen had a bill for $4400. now, that is obviously way north of what the average american spends even on their mortgage payments. and that was just for two days of fun over in copenhagen. >> it was guys and gals. there were republicans and democrats there. the total bill was $404,000. here to me was the most disturbing part of this is that when these members of congress were questioned about this kind of expenditure and using taxpayer money, many of them said they'd never seen the bills or the expense reports. isn't there an inherent problem in that? that, i guess, we have so much tax money from all of us to just throw around that nobody bothers to look at how much things cost? this is what henry waxman had to say about it, democrat from california. i was there because i thought it was important for me to be there. i didn't look at it as a pleasure trip. only problem is i think the average american would look at $
a cnbc exclusive from copenhagen, denmark, is mr. lars sorenson. thank you very much for being here. >> good afternoon, mike. >> when will you launch this drug in the united states? is your sales force ready to hit the ground running? and which doctors will they be targeting? >> our sales force has been ready for months now. this approval process took somewhat longer than we anticipated. so we'll be launching within weeks. we will start out hitting the key opinion leaders, specialists and then broaden out gradually to include all gps in the u.s. >> mr. sorensen, which type 2 diabetics can go on victorza? can they be on other diabetes drugs at the same time or do they have to go off them and take it all by itself? >> vivtorza is a second line treatment for individual 2 diabetes that cannot control blood sugar which is on the most commonly used drug. this means that victoza can replace some of the other second line drugs that are currently being used in the u.s. it is an injectable but very powerful blood sugar-lowering drug with a lot of other benefits. >> mr. sorensen, why are you p
to cut emissions. he had a real seat at the table in copenhagen, and this is the story that he's been spending much of his time on. but in addition we also talked about global markets. i asked him about currencies today, how he's investing and he had some interesting things to say about the valuations in the stock market. how do you see things right now in terms of the environment, globally speaking and in the u.s. right now? where are we in the cycle? >> i think that the collapse of the depression was prevented. the collapse the financial markets was avoided or the off the life support actually worked so the markets are now stabilized. the premiums have shrunk back to normal levels. so that's -- that's fine. and the economy has begun to move forward. but it's only moving forward because it's pushed by the stimulus and that's particularly true in the united states. >> reporter: what are your thoughts on the president's proposals in the banking industry? >> well i'm very supportive. i think it's a step in the right direction. because the banking system has to be changed. this idea of a

"the factor" begins right now! >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thank you for watching us tonight. sarah palin will be here in a moment. but first, the talking points memo. president obama's poll numbers continue to slip. the new cbs poll which is usually friendly to the president has the approval rating at just 46%. that is the worst showing in the poll. the rasmussen daily tracking poll has the president's approval rating at 46% with a whopping 53% of registered voters, likely to vote i should say disapproving. talking points predictd that last week with dick morris i sa
is a little bit of a narrower one. you talked a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen and climate change and agenda assistance with regard to adaptation and mitigation? >> right. thank you. as you know, we're very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would committee to do our part of 100 billion dollars - by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency that have to be adhered to, in order for us to be able and frankly, willing to make the investments. i think for many of the developing countries. this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an on-going challenge, and that's why i mentioned we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role

the international perspective, was he as successful as he wanted to be going to copenhagen? guest: no, he was not as successful as he wanted to be, but he does given the fact that the u.s. had not adopted any kind of climate legislation. he was able to at least achieved one u.s. objective, which was set up a way the international community can see whether major emerging economies like china, india, brazil, permitting voluntary greenhouse gas emissions cuts they say they are going to be. but he did not achieve the overall goal that many americans and europeans were looking for, which was a binding international agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions. host: and the reason why he could not that the binding agreement -- was it because he could not get enough international cooperation, or is it just that they did not want to hear what he was trying to say? guest: it was a combination of things. part of it was because the u.s. had not acted on his own -- on its own, he could not commit the u.s. as the number two greenhouse gas emissions -- the matter in the world, to cut emissions. in additi

on the all-expense paid trip of at least 20 members of congress to the copenhagen climate summit to last month. the bipartisan delegation was so large they needed three military jets, two 737s, and a gulfstream 5. some members of congress brought along their spouses, their kids. there were also senators and staff members who made the trip, most of them flies over commercial. pelosi refused to answer any questions about cost for this or where they all stayed, even though she was the one who decided who went. her office says only that it will, quote, comply with disclosure requirements, unquote. cbs puts the cost of military jet flying time at about $170,000, plus the cost of dozens of commercial flights, hundreds of hotel stays, many at the five-star marriott, and tens of thousands in meals and other entertainment expense. it's a disgrace. the national unemployment rate is 10%, employers cut more jobs than expected just last month. we got the numbers on friday. people are suffering in this country, california, pelosi's home state is faced with a $20 billion budget deficit. governor schwar
